AS I WRITE TO YOU, this year’s “sprinter” is in full effect outside—the trees are trying to spring into leafy action, yet the air still smacks of winter on every third day. But nothing gets me more excited for the warmer days ahead than this issue. In our annual food-and-entertaining volume, the talented food team, led by editorial direct or Sarah Carey, embraces all that’s in season and abundant come summer, in fun and flavorful new ways. In “Herb by Herb,” deputy editor Greg Lofts shares how to cook, create, and concoct a whole crop of things—from grilled-chicken tostadas to infused oils to icy drinks—when you have a fresh bunch on hand. (With his approach, you’ll never worry about having farmer’s-market leftovers again.) If you’re keen to fire up the…

Gazelle, California Families and female-only groups head to Meat Camp, at Belcampo cofounder Anya Fernald’s farm, to slice up the same delectable grass-fed beef sold at her Bay Area butcher shops, then sear it over an open fire. College Station, Texas Spots in Texas A&M’s Barbecue Summer Camp, put on by its meat-sciences division and Foodways Texas, are so popular, there’s a lottery. Win one and you’ll get schooled in the state’s signature meats and spices, then finish with a brisket-and-ribs feast.

You can extend the season by planting early, midseason, and late-bearing cultivars. And most important, you can cultivate them organically. Strawberries top the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list of conventional produce containing the most pesticides. I grow them in raised rows about 20…

For the recipes, turn to page 119. | THE PALETTE | Gray Matters At least once a week, Living home editor Lorna Aragon fields the question: What’s the perfect shade of gray paint? It’s a tough one, given all the beauties out there with different undertones, but she counts these as her top five. | DIY DÉCOR | Duvet It Yourself It’s surprisingly easy—and cost-effective—to make a customized summer-weight comforter cover from two new (or old) flat sheets.
